Ice Cream Toppings for Your Sundae Bar

Ice Cream Toppings | BlairCandy.com

With the amount of cookouts and get-togethers this season, an ice cream sundae bar is a great solution. Not only is it fun for your guests, but it lets everyone create the dessert they want at the end of the meal. But what ice cream toppings do you need to have for a successful bar? These are the basics that you definitely should have sitting next to your ice cream:

M&M’s – Everyone wants extra chocolate in their sundae! M&M’s not only give you the chocolate you’re looking for, but also that candy crunch that is so satisfying.

Chopped Nuts – Can you have a sundae without chopped peanuts? Not really. Chopped peanuts are great, but adding chopped almonds can also add more flavor to a sundae.

Liquid Topping – Fudge and marshmallow topping are a must! These are a great finishing touch to any sundae. Fudge, marshmallow, strawberry, and caramel are usually the fan favorites.

Blair Candy has these and plenty of other classic and crazy toppings for your ice cream sundae bar. Everyone will talk about how fun the idea was and how many ice cream toppings they added to their sundae! Shop now to get started, and don’t forget the sprinkles!

Add your Favorite Vegan Candy Bars to these Desserts

Add Vegan Candy Bars to your Favorite Desserts! | BlairCandy.com

Just because you have a vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on sweet treats. You can add your favorite vegan candy bars to a variety of recipes. Here’s a few that we think would go great with the addition of a candy bar or two:

Blondies: the perfect mix of cookie and brownie. This Vegan Peanut Butter Blondies looks pretty perfect on its own, but a few vegan peanut butter cups would make it even better.

The name of this recipe gives it away, but these Magic Cookie Bars look like they could be even more magical with the addition of a chopped up candy bar.

Nothing cures an off-day like a warm brownie! Try this Vegan Brownie recipe for a great day. Add some mixed in vegan candy bars for an even better one.

At Blair Candy, we’re always sure to be stocked with the best additions to your favorite meal of the day –such as yummy candy ice cream toppings, sprinkles, sundae toppings, and more.
